The Zambia Police this afternoon gave Opposition leader Nevers Mumba an hour to report himself to the Police headquarters for questioning.

On Monday, Dr Mumba who is also President of the Opposition New Hope Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) revealed that the Patriotic Front (PF) rigged the Lukashya by-elections and that they had recruited a South African IT Guru to help them rig next year’s elections.

Yesterday, PF Deputy SG Mumbi Phiri said that the PF would take Dr. Mumba to Court to prove his revelations.

However, in a change of twist, the Zambia Police today at 13:30 delivered two Police Callouts to Democracy House (MMD Secretariat) where they handed it over to New Hope MMD National Secretary Hon. Elizabeth Chitika.

The two Callouts which were both dated Wednesday, the 23rd of September 2020 summoned President Mumba to avail himself to the Police Headquarters within an Hour at 14:30 hours.

Sources within the MMD are shocked by the conduct of the Police and the PF.

“We have been in Power before and We are shocked with the Conduct of the Zambia Police Service. Where on Earth do you first give one Person Two Callouts to report within an Hour for Interrogation? This is unheard of and it is the first time in the history of Zambia that this has happened. There is lawlessness in this country”, the source said.

The source further said that the PF has now resorted to using the police to fight their battles.

“We are further shocked that the PF who just yesterday were busy jumping from one building to another over threats that they will take President Mumba to Court has now resolved to use the Police to fight their battles. The PF should know that using the Police will not stop Zambians from voting them out next year”, the Source said.

  1. People who love democracy should support Mumbai from being terrorised by Lungu’s bidding cops. All Civil Organisations, lawyers and ordinary Zambians should go to police with Mumbai. They want to intimidate him because they know it’s true. They saw a car being destroyed in full view of the public and did nothing. So why are the call out.

  2. Why is the PF so active to fix non essential issues but missing the most important problems for example the economy.

    These people are amazing…what did we do wrong God, to punish us with this.

  3. You know what, I would not mind Nervous Mumba as the biggest opposition leader at this point. He would actually make a better president if ever somehow he truly repented kikiki. This will actually boost President Mumba’s portfolio. He needs to apologize to God, Zambians and Christians first.

  4. We need to hold ourselves accountable for the things we say. You cannot just open your big mouth and spew out hot smelly garbage without evidence. This is good for mumba as he will be able to avail the nation with the evidence to support his allegations. Our men and women in uniform are only doing their job. Chapwa. Do not get it twisted.

  5. This is political persecution at best. MMD as a political party has a stronger economic and governance platform than the corrupt PF.. But this callout is also an abuse and misuse of power. The officers should be dealing with crime other than wasting time as pawns of the failed ruling class. Arguably, this callout was the behind-the-scene maneuvres of the former foreign exchange street peddler–the ever clueless incompetent and thuggish kapyongo for his equally incompetent cluessless boss!

  6. I do not agree with Mumba on the rigging. People voted for PF is the recent bye elections. Why is the under5 Chikal$ not crying. UNIP and MMD are history because Zambians do not go back to eat their own vomit.

  9. My mother and brothers in the village doesn’t know how to go on internet. How will they register as voters on line. They do not have smart phone either. Are they going to VOTE!! Is it election for the Elite?

  10. Rigging elections is a police case. So, if ba mumba knows who rigged the elections and how as he claims, police will have interest in knowing the details of rigging. If it’s true the elections were rigged has nevers claims, then the riggers will be brought to book for the national interest. In fact the best thing nevers should have done was to report the matter to police.

  11. Everyone will vote. Even those without computers and smart phones will still register in the old system. That is what ECZ has told us and I believe them.

  13. This is a very important obsession by pastor Mumba. He needs help by police so that he can take evidence to court. We need clean elections, false perceptions need to be removed.we cannot have people getting away with creating negative perceptions about the country and get away with it.

  14. It is not the responsibility of police to very an electoral complaint. Suppose Mr.Mumbai provides credible information, are the police going to nullify the Lukashya/mwansabombwe bye-elections?

  15. Who is the complainant? And it appears the same complainant is in a serious hurry. How do you summon somebody where there is no complainant, just because the man said you rigged. Antonio said Nevers should go to court, so why not for the man to gather his evidence properly so that he can go to court. Why try to intimidate him?

  16. Well, that the Zambia we want. Lungu is the only one with police protection. Is this really the dictatorship we expected Zambia to be? People including the police please open your eyes

  17. @Chileshe Chepela please dont show off your ignorance . ECZ did not say there will be only online registration . There are 2 ways of registering 1 online and the traditional one if you can manage to register online you can use that and if you cant manage online you can register with the traditional method. So dont cheat people that there is only online registration.

  19. Citizens don’t panic! Read that letter from the Police. Dr Mumba is required to attend Police interviews. He may just become the new Inspector General because Kanganja will be given an ambassadorial posting before next year’s elections. Don’t stress Mumba will have a big job in the Zambia Police!

  20. There is no problem here, Nevers should just go to ZP with all the files of evidence. If he’s bluffing, let ZP do their thing and slap him a bit and keep him in cells overnight for wasting Zambians’ time.

  21. The issue of Mumba appearing before the police is secondary and therefore irrelevant, altogether. What is relevant is for him to prove what he has said as true or false. What Mumba said has the potential to cause despondency in the country. Much as the ‘Social Media Party’ (SMP) hates the PF, members (SMP) must not be hypocrites (as they have always been) who should fail to see the danger of Mumba’s outbursts.

  23. Those of you saying Mumba should himself, do you honestly trust PF? How many court cases has PF never intervened in? I don’t trust PF and even if Mumba shows evidence these will tell the judges what the outcome should be.

  24. SO FAR IT WILL BE PREMATURE TO CONDEMN THE POLICE. PART OF THEIR JOB IS TO INVESTIGATE THE OCCURRENCE OF A CRIME. MUMBA SEEMS TO HAVE EVIDENCE. SO THEY WANT TO ASK HIM TO ESTABLISH WHETHER INDEED THERE IS A CRIME AND CRIMINAL. THIS IS POTENTIALLY A HIGH PROFILE CASE. AND THE SAME POLICE WILL BE BLAMED IF SUCH A CASE ELUDES THEM

  25. Late MCS once described Nevers Mumba as politically-unreliable. He certainly doesn’t know wht’s politically-safe to say publicly. I doubt it he even knows that he needs to observe politicians more closely than he does and a few things. Be that as it may, I’m surprised that wht he has said lately has become a matter of police interest.

    Fake Kaizar Zulu… your statement above is a complete 180 degrees about turn on your stance on Nawakwi’s HH accusations. Do you even listen to yourself spew out some nonsensical vomits? Hypocrite!

  27. In one video I saw a ZP Toyota Hilux na kapokola waku Traffic watching the PF cadres maliciously damaging a UPND branded vehicle, minutes later a ZP Land cruiser with an army of policemen showed up slowly, watched the cadres at work and disappeared. Is it not surprising that someone who simply says this guy stole my votes should be summoned at lightning speed pace, when you cannot shamelessly tell the nation where you salaries come from?

    When someone said either the dogs have come to the country or the country has gone to the dogs, I thought I would never for one, live to see the reality of those words! I am so ashamed to be Zambian under the masquerades.

  29. Why should Nevers be left alone after uttering a statement that is likely to plunge the nation into turmoil? Let him present evidence of the hiring of the South African Guru, or else…
